San Diego, CA – Mitchell International recently released its third quarter Industry Trends Report for 2020. The report shares important data-driven trends impacting the property and casualty industry, along with expert insights, opinions and guidance that can help businesses navigate this year’s new environment.
“We’re starting to see important new patterns emerge as we move into the second half of 2020,” said President and CEO Alex Sun. “Understanding and responding to these trends will be critically important as we move forward. While the needs of our clients and the people they serve are the significant drivers of new innovations and technologies, we continue to see an accelerated pace of adoption driven by COVID-19 and we expect to see new needs arise as the year continues.”
Throughout this quarter’s report, Mitchell experts share insights important to the industry, including new vehicle repair trends based on an analysis of diagnostic scanning data, complications introduced by automobiles with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), the challenges of the insurance industry workforce’s most experienced adjusters thinking about retirement and the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare employee workers’ compensation claims. Alex Sun also shares an overview of Extended Reality (XR), as more than 35% of all businesses are predicted to adopt and use some kind of extended reality technology in the next three years.
